Can't wait to see him in tonight's line up.. The shocked faces everywhere ???

I think a mask or two in the crowd to confuse the tabloids is in order. **** it, 32,000 masks it is then!

Of course. These things take a long time. Denying one transfer will not change that.

This is a dark day. Not coz we lost maguire..but for the messages it sends.

 

Ok players sign a contract for a long as you like in return for a big wage hike .... and dont worry coz we wont hold you to it. 

 

Come on top six club help yourselves to any of our players you fancy

 

I expected more

 

I think this sends out the total opposite message, it says to other clubs, we don't need to sell but if you want to buy then you need to pay absolute top dollar , we will not be cherry picked for peanuts, and let's not forget that Harry wanted to go, if he didn't want to leave , we would not have sold him, end of.

This is a journey that many must take together. Those that stand alone, fall alone.

 

Seeing  as we are being sanctimonious :thumbup:

Apparently the agent is having to split his fee with the tabloids and Sky Sports for services rendered. 

You're not allowed to approach a player without the clubs permission but with their help there have been weeks of flowing dialogue!

Am I the only one who think the club has played this beautifully?

We have a world record fee for a defender, Harry wanted to go really AND he ain’t THAT good.

80 mill quid. Great business from us

Totally agree :appl:

Telegraph says 85m while BBC say 80m, which is correct? 

I’m not sure, but I hope city made a point of being able to release the fee.

Not particularly miffed about this one. We may have lost Maguire but I feel like we held our ground like a big club. We get our asking price and they get a player that is not as good as they think he is. We win because we still have 4 capable first team defenders, with Soyuncu being the favourite to take Maguire's place. Speaking of Soyuncu, he has the potential to be as good, if not better than Maguire. I'd be surprised if we signed anyone else now, they'd just have our pants down.

80m + Ed’s cheeseboard, which he values at 5m

If we sign dunk for anymore than what he is worth and that being 5m no more we have well and truly ****ed up.

 

We need to give benko and Soyunchu the chance they deserve they will only get better and better with long periods of playing time.

 

Personally from what I seen when he was at Celtic benkovic looks better than both tawkoski and dunk anyway. Soyunchu looks like a solid player aswel no need to sign a replacement

The club did really well with this. Handled the negotiation brilliantly from laughing at the Arsenal £45mn to the Man U we will never pay more than £60mn to grossing up to £85mn. Its good business for Hull City too. Shows the days of being pushed around by the 'big clubs' and media are pretty much ended. The player though are showing a little less professionalism, after Mahrez parking himself at airports it seems we came close to Maguire parking himself at Keele services on the M6. Makes you appreciate the club players like Walsh and King a whole lot more.

 

Onwards and hopefully upwards.

I was more disappointed when Lineker, Heskey, Lennon, A Smith, Gary Mac to name just a few left, it’s football, we got a great price, now we’ll do the same to another club.

Tommy Wright leaving though.....

Agree, so long as we do that. I know the circumstances were different with the Drinkwater / Silva situation but we went half a season a player light with Kingy filling in, compromising our chances for a very good season (Insert joke about still being a player light when Silva was availabIe) I don't want us to kick off this time with a weaker squad and cash in the bank but if as you say we can do this to another club then we could be okay. 

I know Rodgers only came in this year but realistically the club have had 12 months to think and plan for this scenario so fingers crossed they can spend it as well as they spent the Mahrez money.

Oh you are quite correct, do not get me wrong. Would have loved to see us have said "not for sale", and that be the end of it.

but big clubs, big wages, we like many clubs have no true defence against such draws at this point in time.

With respect Brendan has a better idea than me or you if they’re good enough, we have to trust him.
